      I agree, the Opera experience is way better, I have to rely on apps like the Youtube app to watch videos. Skyfire still has a long way to go I think, but it’s getting there.

    Have you used the Turbo mode while loading pages using Opera Mobile? Coz as far as i know Skyfire compresses the pages before sending them to the mobile, whereas Opera loads the full page on the mobile without compression. However, server side compression can be done on opera mobile using the Turbo mode, which would speed up load times on Opera Mobile. A more proper speed comparision would be between Opera Mini and Skyfire, coz they are similar .
    Great video by the way🙂.
